NAIDOC Week 2020: Always Was, Always Will Be

NAIDOC Week celebrates the history, culture and achievements of Aboriginal and Torres Strait Islander peoples.

Events and celebrations are running across Australia from 8 November to 15 November.

This year’s theme of ‘Always Was, Always Will Be’ recognises that First Nations people have occupied and cared for this continent for over 65,000 years.
